It was fun to see so many Koalas and educational to know how the community protect and nurture them. Good stop-over for kids as well as adults

For spending countless hours to help our koalas recover from injury and sickness, we all need to commend the volunteers of the Koala Hospital. For their dedicated and compassionate demeanour; thank you! PS: whilst it is not expected, a donation would be appreciated.

This is an amazing place, worthy of much more attention and funding than they ask for or receive! I was quite moved by seeing how they care for these special creatures - you will be also!

The Koala Hospital looks after the sick and injured koalas from the local area. Worth a visit and parents should try and keep their kids a little quiet so these little guys can relax and get better. It is a free activity run by volunteers.

A must visit when in Port Macquarie - but there is really not much to see. Great initiative though which we all should support.

Took the family for the afternoon and we loved it. Make sure you get there for the talk, the volunteers do a fantastic job. Certainly made us all aware of the dangers that koala's face.

An entirely volunteer basis / donation basis. Some great information and demonstrations regarding the rehabilitation process for sick and injured koalas. The facility itself is located in a stress-free environment and it's a great opportunity to see some beautiful native creatures.

Free facility near flynns beach. Staff work on a volunteering basis so only donation is needed. Saw some lovely (poorly and recovering) koalas. Kids loved it.
